111 Day Artistic Spirit Pledge: Spiritual Growth Through Creative Expression

Day 44: A Native Branch

A spiritual connection without an ancestral link

A sense of knowing yet the facts elude

A family tree with broken branches

Let the rain pour down and heal

 

Part of a tribe without confirmation

Part of a whole with missing pieces

The spirit speaks to ancestors passed

Let the stories unfold

 

Fallen leaves and brittle branches need loving care

To make ready for the Native limbs of the family tree.

 

**I am an Artistic Spirit! For most of my life I’ve used the creative arts as a source of spiritual exploration and healing, even though I didn’t always do so consciously. Sometimes I was the instrument creating the art and other times I was on the receiving end. The connection between art and spirituality is so significant in my life that it’s infused into everything I do. I love music, theatre, television drama series (daytime and primetime), and creative writing and find fulfillment in artistic expression of various sorts: singing, acting, and jewelry design. Throughout the next 67 days, I’ll delve into how all of the above strengthens my spirit and has saved my life on more than one occasion.**
